As the Circle Of Life song from the Lion King says, “There is far too much to take in here, more to do than can ever be done.” There are so many wonders to see on land, beneath the sea, and up in the sky that I am becoming even more and more sure in my own mind that many lives have already been lived by us and many perhaps are yet to come to accomplish that daunting mission. Today’s children’s book reading is about a beautiful water creature called Feather Fin. Stephen Cosgrove has a way with words and Robin James a way with a brush and colors.
One of my favorite Disney animated movies is The Little Mermaid. As beautiful as her undersea world is she like so many of us wants it all. It is a typical two worlds story where she feels forced to choose one. One of my favorite themes is that as right as our Western duality notion of everything having to be right or wrong, good or bad, black or white, might seem that it just does not encompass the whole picture and that is a wonderful wider oneness world where it is never really either or, but both, never this or that, but all.
We can love the the deep sea depth and the high mountain top, the black rain clouds and the white puffy ones, the dark and the light, the day and the night. All things are indeed ours to enjoy. We can have it all, if not at once, eventually, if we just keep our hearts and minds open to all that life has to offer.
Someone has wisely said regarding happy endings that if this is not a happy time we are going through that we can be sure it is not the end of the story yet. It is good to always have some to look forward to and we do.
